Sunday School: On Sunday mornings, Sunday School classes are offered during the 9:00 AM hour in the Education Building.

Preschool/Nursery Care: Also on Sunday mornings, from 9:00 AM until the end of the worship service at 12:00 Noon, we have classes for preschoolers in the Education Building, and we have a Nursery in our Administration Building that allows you to drop off your baby or toddler and attend a Bible Study class or the Worship Service.


At Northwest, we provide many opportunities for our students in grades 7-12 to connect with God, connect with each other, and to grow in their faith. New or visiting students are welcome to participate in any of the programs we offer.


Northwest strives to help people experience a personal relationship with God. We believe that people experience God in worship, grow in their faith through Small Groups, and respond to this life-changing experience in service to others in Jesus’ name. For our Adults, we offer multiple Small Groups, both on Sunday morning and during the week in host homes around the Milwaukee area. We also have a Men’s Ministry and a Women’s Ministry, both of which offer events throughout the year, such as the Men’s Retreat, Women’s Retreat, Prayer Breakfasts, Ladies’ Tea & Bible Study, and more.


While the name Senior Adult may remind some of a reality they would rather not think about, at Northwest we celebrate how God provides extraordinary gifts and potential at any age in a life surrendered to our Lord Jesus Christ. We have developed a ministry to and through Senior Adults. We vary greatly in age, energy level, and interest, but unity with diversity is the banner we wave!

Blanket of Love Sanctuary

Northwest Baptist Church is a Blanket of Love Sanctuary. This ministry provides prenatal and parenting education for young women, their spouses, and friends or families. The program creates a community of support through a welcoming meal, an educational presentation, and time for sharing with members of the group.

Blanket of Love Sanctuary participants receive education and tips on prenatal care and strategies to improve the health of the mother and the baby.  The program connects participants to other resources that can help lower stress, support wellness and eliminate the two most preventable causes of infant death in Milwaukee: premature births and unsafe sleeping environments.

The Blanket of Love Sanctuary is supported and planned by the Ascension Hospital System and meets once a month at churches in the Milwaukee area.

Note: Due to COVID-19, our church is in Phase 2 of its Road to Regathering Plan. During this phase, all Blanket of Love ministry activities are limited to resource distributions. In-person gatherings will resume later. Questions? Please contact Melody Willer, Blanket of Love Coordinator, at 414-463-3630 x603.
